— The University of Washington’s Clean Energy Institute named Kevin Klustner as executive director of the Center for Advanced Materials and Clean Energy Technologies (CAMCET). Klustner was most recently CEO of industrial energy efficiency platform Powerit Solutions, which is owned by Customized Energy Solutions. He also served as CEO of energy efficiency software startup Verdiem.
“UW is a powerhouse in advanced materials and clean energy research and development,” Klustner said in a statement. “CAMCET will connect these UW researchers with local and global industry and nonprofit partners to bring critical clean technologies to the world.”
UW received $20 million last year to establish CAMCET, which will act as the home of clean energy and advanced materials research, a testing facility, classrooms and events. CAMCET will be located on UW’s West Campus, south of the planned U-District Link Light Rail Station.
